To celebrate the release of her new single Dead & Gone, Aussie songwriter Jess Locke has announced some hometown headline tour dates.

Locke has today confirmed a run of headline shows in February through Ballarat, Kyneton, Castlemaine, Beechworth and Warrnambool before finishing up with a final show in Melbourne.

The tour also comes in support of Locke's forthcoming album, Don't Ask Yourself Why, due out Friday 26 March. 

"Singing [Dead & Gone] feels like vomiting up my sadness and regret and finding a moment of peace," Locke said of the new track.

"People probably think that all singers always love singing, but that’s not true for me. Sometimes it feels like work and it takes a lot of energy. But I enjoy singing this song. I like the way it feels in my throat and my body.

"To me, this song isn’t just about moving on and healing, it is that in itself. I wish I could say that about more songs, but I can say it about this one.

"One of my favourite moments on the record is at the end of this song, when the humble little folk tune flies off into the sky in a looping, weaving, transcendent celebration of sounds. It’s a metamorphosis in real time."
